Today's Astrology Forecast | Wednesday, October 27th, 2021 - moody mamas and manipulative children or vice versa or something like that ....


 

 

The Moon is in her home sign of Cancer (since yesterday). 

 

Maybe our attention has turned to home matters, real estate, renovation, home or family business. With a Cancer Moon we are nurtured/nourished by home and family, by mom and apple pie. 

 

She is all over the place today - squares Mercury at 1:09AM EDT, trines Neptune at 10:47AM EDT and opposes Pluto at 6:07PM EDT. 

 

The Moon in "mama-bear" Cancer is sensitive/protective/self-protective/moody. The square to Mercury in partnership/fairness/balance focused Libra speaks of difficult conversations or information. Maybe feelings get hurt. It is easy to take things too personally. The smooth trine to Neptune in Pisces pulls in compassion/reminiscing/forgiveness, but then we move into our monthly lunar opposition to powerful Pluto. Things get intense/uncomfortable. Something can feel like life and death. The stuff that is not being said becomes more important than what is. Oppositions are similar to Full Moons and bring culminations/peak energy/endings. Maybe hidden information comes out. Someone says what needs to be said (or maybe it doesn't but it gets said anyway and now it's out there) and it doesn't feel so good. Power struggles, maybe reminiscent of childhood situations. Manipulations. This can also bring up situations with other people's money, merged funds, taxes, inheritances, loans, reproduction, intimacy issues. 


At 2:01AM EDT on the 28th, the Moon will go void off a testy square to Mars at the end of Libra leaving us feeling antsy. Don't force a late night conversation/action that doesn't need to happen. It might not go so well.

 

The good news - keep in mind, all day (in play all week) Venus is applying to tomorrow's sextile to Jupiter. Expansion. Hope. Luck. Opportunity. Ka-ching. This is your Sagittarius house and your Aquarius house all powered up with goodies. Everyone gets something this week/some kind of LUCKY. How is this impacting you? What can you do with this? Just keep in mind the whole over-estimating thing/going too far, too big too fast. We talked about that and more in the weekly HERE.

  • Cancer Moon square Mercury in Libra (15 deg)
  • Moon trine Neptune Rx in Pisces (20 deg)
  • Moon opposite Pluto in Capricorn (24 deg)

The Moon/Mercury square triggers emotional discussions that veer between extremes. It will be difficult to have a polite convo because sensitivities will be heightened. There could be dramatic statements or difficulties in saying/hearing something clearly. Before you respond, step back and think. 

The trine to Neptune can encourage a healing flow and compassion but that will take you right into the opposition with Pluto. So what begins as smooth access to certain needs/feelings will quickly reach an intense culmination - fears of loss, neediness and parental issues will be activated. There could be an ending/breakthrough that allows you to access something that's been repressed, but it won't feel comfortable. The full spectrum of emotions will be activated with a range that includes mothering/smothering, childlike helplessness and manipulative withdrawal.

Nonetheless, don't shrink from what's revealed - a mini "death" can clear the way for enhanced self-sufficiency. Also, this can be a good time to recognize who you're handing your power to - no one has the power to make you feel anything (you're in control of your emotions).

This Week's Astrology Forecast for creatives | October 25th - 31st, 2021 - a need to catch our breath, expansion, hope, luck, faith, taking a risk without betting the farm, the push and pull and deep dive of this year's scorpio season begins


 

Was last week a roller coaster ride or what?!

 

The Sun is in deep, dark Scorpio now - the fixed space of the autumn season. I'd say the space where the dead stay buried, but with Mars' Scorpio ingress this week, that might not be totally true. 


Venus is very active. First up a creative/spiritual, but maybe delusional and almost certainly exhausting square to Neptune (maybe a hangover from last week's ups and downs and fast crash landing) and then an opportunistic sextile with an expansive and LUCKY Jupiter when we'll have to know when to stretch/reach for more and when to say when.

 

The Last Quarter Moon in fixed signs followed by a Sun square Saturn (also in fixed signs) should keep us grounded/from going too far/will pull in the reality police.

 

Let's unpack the week!

 

TUESDAY - Venus squares Neptune, Mars sextiles the Galactic Center, Ceres conjuncts Black Moon Lilith

THURSDAY - Venus sextiles Jupiter, Last Quarter Moon in Leo

 SATURDAY - Mars into Scorpio, the Sun squares Saturn


TUESDAY - Venus, at 20 degrees Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces. The Venus/Neptune square is tension/frustration/maybe disappointment. What we want might dissolve/fade away.  Sag/Pisces can both be rather pie-in-the-sky energies, so keep one foot on the ground now. Not everything is quite what it seems. We might be pining for something we think we lost that we never actually had or wanting something without even knowing what it is. There is some kind of leaky/bottom-less cup here. We want more.

 

Take a breath. Maybe a nap.

 

Ceres meets up with Black Moon Lilith at 11 degrees Gemini. Black Moon Lilith (as us) in Gemini has made her escape from the garden. She is saying what she wants to say/thinking how she wants to think. Ceres is retrograde - this is their second meeting and pulls us back to a situation from early August. This portal is the re-thinking, re-languaging, re-evaluating part as the mother energy (can also bring up change of life situations and situations outside our control or in need of compromise) meets the taboo/won't be anyone's ball and chain feminine energy. 

 

Mars, nearing the end of his FREAKIN' EXHAUSTING journey through partnership/fairness/balanced, passive-aggressively indecisive Libra now sextiles (opportunity) the Galactic Center - our homing signal/Black Hole in the center of our Milky Way Galaxy. Our actions/passions - again, think Libra - cooperative, diplomatic, fair - are calling in a new co-creative power. Collectively we are letting go of the need to project our issues onto other people in order to defend our own vulnerabilities. We are learning (through Mars disposition of Chiron in Aries) that we can take care of ourselves/stand up for ourselves, that being vulnerable is one of our superpowers - that being vulnerable AND REAL does not equal being weak. 

 

Mars is hours away from coming home to Scorpio - where we will go deeper, act with passion/power, merge more fully, prune the dead wood. With Chiron in Aries - and answering to Mars - we are a couple years into a collective healing through a shift from tribal power to individual power (he will be in Aries until 2027). Mars journey through Libra every couple years is our opportunity to take back some of what we have been projecting onto other people AND, at the same time, bring some of our newly-formed "individual selves" into our relationships/the way we do 'fair' now, the way we do 'balance'. This is tricky because our group memory is tribal and something deep within us is always sending out warning signals when we venture too far from the 'tribe' or in this case, the way relationships 'have always been' done, but that old version of loss of self within intimate relationships is no longer possible. Which makes everyone, yes, a little more lonely (at this point in the cycle anyway, we'll have to see how we work the next few years), but also keep in mind we are carrying our unique spark at a very intimate level now and no one can take it from us. We will likely have to take some action to activate this sextile now, but seriously creative downloads are possible. Pay attention. Act with courage and civility/fairness. This will add power to Thursday's Venus/Jupiter sextile. 


On THURSDAY, the Leo Moon squares the Scorpio Sun at 5 degrees. This is our Last Quarter Square before next week's powerful New Moon in Scorpio opposing (anything-can-happen) Uranus. This square is fixed energy. The Leo Moon wants to have some fun OUT THERE and the Scorpio Sun wants to get to the bottom of things/stay home and do a puzzle. Our ego, need for attention/appreciation is at odds with what we want to keep hidden/out of sight/in our back pocket/close to our chest. Do we put it all out there or hold something back? The Leo Sun can also bring attention to something we don't want to look at/deal with. This can also show up simply as the tension between going out and being visible and staying in and doing our own private things.


Venus, at 22 degrees Sagittarius sextiles Jupiter at 22 degrees Aquarius. Here is smooth flow. Here is what we want meeting the opportunity to get it. Luck. Freedom. Expansion.

 

But also - and I don't want to focus on this, but I do have to say it, especially since Venus is coming off that square to fantastical/sometime delusional Neptune - with Venus (at the powerful 22 degrees) in Sagittarius answering to more-is-more-is-more Jupiter (at the powerful 22 degrees Aquarius), the possibility to take something TOO FAR.

 

On the other hand, and this is why we get two of then, the rewards with Jupiter ALWAYS come with some risk/hope/faith.


On SATURDAY - Mars comes home to Scorpio (after two years) joining the Sun and will power up our Scorpio planets!


With Mars (action, initiative, passion, anger) here we will think about what we are going to do before we do it. Scorpio likes to premeditate. And, yes, that sounds slightly criminal and mostly devious, but this is Scorpio we are talking about! We could be doing things in secret. Shh! Mars in Scorpio can be good for our physical energy since Scorpio is continually re-generating itself. 
 

Because Scorpio rules our 8th house of compulsions and obsessions we could find our actions driven by our impulses. If you find yourself caught in a loop - STOP - ask yourself - why am I doing this again? why am I so mad? why do I want this so badly? what am I really trying to get? We can get alot done with Mars in Scorpio let's just make sure it is stuff worth doing.

Scorpio is our fixed water sign. It's job is to strengthen our emotions. But fixed water is well, kind of fixed. Think frozen. Think concrete. Think quicksand. It can make it hard to change course if we get too emotionally wedded to whatever it is we are focused on. If you are heading into the quicksand anyway, keep one hand on a tree branch, like they do in the cartoons, to pull yourself out later. But don't say I didn't warn you if the branch breaks.


Where is Scorpio in your natal chart? That area of life will SNAP TO ATTENTION now.

Collectively this is also a good time to take action with Scorpio ruled themes - other people's resources, debts, loans, inheritances, mortgages, taxes, insurance payments, intimacy, sex, reproduction, life and death issues, stuff that is dead in the water (or caught in the quicksand). This is a good time for renovation projects/bringing something back to life. With Mars blasting through this collective area we will have more energy, initiative and control over these subjects than we usually do. Keep in mind we will also be more passionate about them and easier to anger.

 

Mars will be in Scorpio until December 13th. 


SATURDAY is also the day the Sun, at 7 degrees Scorpio, will square Saturn in Aquarius. 

 

Here is a stop sign/road block/reality check. New rules. Here is our responsibility to the group/to the future. Happening during the Mars/Scorpio ingress pulls some additional seriousness/sobriety into Mars time in Scorpio. Also some stop and go/give and take energy.

the full moon in aries | october 20th, 2021 - the stuff that won't stay stuffed, endings without closure, fighting for justice and balance and other people, choosing freedom over comfort, rising from the ashes a brand new person

 


The Full Moon is always a time of cosmic tension - the Moon opposes the Sun. 

 

On October 20th, 2021 at 10:57AM EDT, the Moon, at 27 degrees Aries, opposes the Sun in Libra. This is the culmination of the Aries New Moon that launched the lunar year back in April, so maybe something from that time is finishing up. Feels like years ago, doesn't it? Time has kind of swallowed us up, so it probably was! On the other hand 2021 is FLYING isn't it?!

 
At the time of the Full Moon - situations peak, culminate, come to light, conclude. 

 

Results are delivered.


With Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto all stationing direct within the last couple weeks - WHOOSH - the tables turn.

 

Let's get right down to it. Let's unpack the chart! 

 

The Moon opposes the Sun - Aries/Libra at 27 degrees. Me vs we. How we partner. How we balance and share. Is justice just? An Aries Moon is raw/impulsive/self-centered. The energy can make us antsy and accident-prone.

 

The Sun is conjunct Mars - ruler of Aries and so ruler of this lunation. He is opposing the Moon and in the sign of his detriment, Libra, so answering to Venus (in Sagittarius so wanting her FREEDOM). Mars squares (tension/frustration) powerful Pluto in Capricorn. Destructive/passive-aggressive action. Or maybe a fast ending? An ending without closure? Which isn't always a bad thing. Sometimes a problem situation ends and we never quite know what the hell happened, but it's OK because it's over.

 

Keep in mind, this is a Full Moon in independent ARIES - if we are going to be truly ourselves - better whole than good (as Jung would say), other people may not always be so happy about it. This isn't about being a selfish asshole, but we are going to have to stand up for ourselves and we are going to have to get angry sometimes. And we are going to have to find ways to work with these feelings that are NOT destructive. And, that don't allow this personal and collective tension/stress to dump directly into our nervous system and impact our health or force impulsive choices. With Mars in Libra other people will have to be taken into consideration, something Mars doesn't like to do, hence his detriment here. 

 

With Mars applying to his square to Pluto - exact in two days - it will be very hard to suppress the kinds of feelings we might normally suppress. Mars square Pluto is DANGEROUS/deadly. Powerful. Painful. With Mars separating from his trine to Jupiter (luck/expansion) - here is what comes AFTER the optimism/opportunity. Pluto says to get this you have to let go of that. And with Pluto we often won't know what this is, just that THAT is gone. 


What is actually happening during a Mars/Pluto square is a kind of passage/portal is activated between these two energies - this activates not only our collective Libra and Capricorn houses (this time with Mars in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn), but ALSO our natal Mars and Pluto. They get to have a conversation. Squares are tension/frustration, so the conversation is kind of FORCED. Pluto can bring out Mars in Libra's repressed feelings about relationship/balance/justice. The subtle, and not so subtle, power struggles that are playing on guilt and dependency show up in the bright light of the Full Moon. 

 

Our goal with whatever we have going on - avoid the negative sides of Mars and Pluto - that would be impulsiveness, needing to burn something down, destructive anger, manipulation, jealousy, control, possessiveness. But we can't just hide ourselves in a closet and wait this week out. Hidden issues will come up to be dealt with. Squares put our back against the wall. With Pluto, it might feel like someone else is holding all the cards. Something isn't FAIR. We need to channel the positive Mars to deal with this. That means courage. That means independence. In Libra, it also means diplomacy and civility. That's why this is so tricky. It's easy to be brave and independent when it is all about us, when we have nothing to lose, but what about those times when it isn't and we do? 

 

And remember Mars is answering to Venus in Sagittarius who wants to be FREE and she is answering to a newly direct Jupiter in Aquarius who is certainly wanting that, too! Jupiter is back at 22 degrees Aquarius, where he was last March, and he will be here for the rest of the month. There isn't really the rush the Moon thinks there is!

 

The Full Moon chart shows Mercury, also in Libra and trining Black Moon Lilith in Gemini. Lilith is all for burning the whole thing down, too, so, again, care is needed here. 

 

Pink paint won't be poured over problems, but we don't have to pour gasoline.


That trine, the Mercury/BML, opens ANOTHER portal, pulls in Gemini. More than one choice. More than one way through. More than one conversation/idea.


This looks to me like what is beginning from the scorched soil of whatever Pluto is killing off, offers more than one option/choice, but it comes through Black Moon Lilith! More courage needed. More truth. The taboo/stuff we haven't wanted to look at/talk about in polite company is pulled into the mix. We have to go through HER. Where is BML is your natal chart? What does she need to express?


If we look further ahead at what the Moon is doing we can see what comes next. 

 

This is a very late Moon (27 degrees) so shortly after opposing the Sun she goes void. Everyone goes to their corner to lick their wounds maybe or we are kind of not knowing what to do next. Then she moves into Taurus, the sign of her EXALTATION. Here is comfort. Here is what we have now. 

 

Then BAM, she squares Saturn, newly direct in Aquarius and covering this ground for the THIRD time. This can bring clarity/reality, but might bring up a great bit of fear. A road block/stop sign. We might feel pushed to give up something that is ours or we are just really feeling what we don't have. Now, here's the thing to remember, because her next move is a meeting with chaotic/change-maker Uranus, this isn't just about the ending/culmination/what the Full Moon brings to light, this is also about WHAT COMES NEXT if we can embrace the innovation/change/future and let go of what we NO LONGER NEED. We get to rise like a phoenix from the ashes. We get to be a brand new person.

 

So by Thursday evening EDT - because remember the Moon does in two and a half days what it takes the Sun a month to do - she is hanging out with Uranus. They are both in Taurus and answering to Venus - in Sag and what does SHE want again? Freedom! And in Sag we know things always work out better when we take a little RISK. 

 

As the Moon moves through Taurus she is going to inconjunct Venus. Give and take. A rock and a hard place. Keeping what we have - our resources, our money, our values, our self esteem (Taurus) vs freedom/those greener grasses over there that we might or might not reach (Sagittarius) - sorry there's no guarantees with any of this. 

 

Then she inconjuncts Mars - more Venus interacting uncomfortably with planets answering to HER. Mars needing to be balanced/direct and not all passive-aggressive nonsense and finally the Moon in Taurus trines Pluto - here's where the square to Pluto from just a couple days earlier gets some emotional smooth flow (with authority/power) if we have managed this Full Moon story by not hiding and not burning the whole place down. 

 

By Saturday, she is in Gemini meeting the North Node of FATE - the path ahead for us - and meeting up with Black Moon Lilith, now we are emotionally merged with our cosmic bad-girl. This is Gemini - what have we learned?? In Gemini there is always another door/window/CHOICE. Stay flexible. Keep an open mind. Ask more questions. Lilith wasn't afraid to run away from the garden, well, maybe she was afraid but she chose freedom over comfort anyway and in some way we have to do this now, too.


Bottom line - this is a volatile Full Moon - Mars/Pluto pulls in some DANGER WILL ROBINSON flashing lights, but also makes some power moves/plays on OUR part possible, too. Just get real about your motivations - the negative Mars/Pluto we talked about earlier are the no-no's. Although even the no-no's are probably not totally avoidable right now because the stuff we have stuffed is coming up. If we can stay motivated by justice, balance, freedom we have a better chance of lining ourselves up with the best possible outcomes. 

 

Pluto (and Eris) will pull in the things we don't want to look at and Mars will say look (and deal) we must. Release what is dead. You won't have a choice anyway. And in Plutonian language if it isn't growing it's dead. 

 

We can rise from the ashes a BRAND NEW PERSON with this one.

 

I 'll hedge my bets with a trip to Goodwill with some old faux leather handbags - kind of the modern version of tossing virgins into volcanoes, I think - and try for some sorely needed justice/change in my own life over the next two weeks as this Full Moon's story unwinds.

Weekly Astrology Forecast | October 18th - 24th, 2021 - green means go, the conversation shifts, our fortune changes, fast endings without closure that chart a new course, that luck we thought had run out well maybe it hasn't, an intense week


 

 

What a week! Yes, another one - 2021 is going to go out with a bang folks.

 

On MONDAY, the Moon is in "let's get started" Aries - we are nourished/nurtured by action, passion, initiative, anger, time spent moving our bodies, time spent with men. Her only aspect today is a stabilizing sextile (opportunity) to Saturn at 7:14PM EDT. Good for taking something seriously/dealing with authority and stepping into our own.

 

Mercury AND Jupiter station direct (they are both direct before noon EDT). 

 

This is FORWARD movement and good news for our relationships.

 

With Mercury direct - the conversation shifts. Our thinking changes. Stuck distribution channels come unstuck. Decisions get made - we decide. They do, too. If someone has come back into our life during Mercury's long retrograde through Libra - well, that situation might fade to black now. Bye-bye. If someone has disappeared, this week is when they might make a re-appearance.


With Jupiter direct - our fortune can shift. We (and everyone else) start LOOKING AHEAD. Group/online situations come unstuck. We should begin to feel more optimistic as Jupiter - the planet of hope and luck - gets up to speed over the next few days.


Mars (at 22 degrees Libra) is trining Jupiter - at the degree of his station AFTER he turns direct. HERE is where you want to be taking action - Monday afternoon EDT. This is a smooth flow. Our efforts can make us lucky/hopeful. This is the natural trine between your Libra house and your Aquarius house amped up with the energy of two powerful planets. AND the Moon in Aries answering to Mars with that applying sextile to serious Saturn helps, too. Think - expansive action. Think - optimistic action. Keep in mind Mars is still in Libra - be balanced, cordial, social, fair, diplomatic, but also DIRECT. Mercury is direct - SAY what you want. If you have been back and forth over something/put something on hold/or need to DEFEND yourself/what you value - Monday afternoon looks like the time for some positive action.


(I had a customer contact me last week. She had asked me to include a little freebie with her order and I forgot to include it. She emailed me about how disappointed she was and then added, "let me know how this happened". I was not at all surprised she used this kind of wording because of all the passive-aggressive Libra energy. It's impacting all of us. Maybe she normally would have said, "can I still get this?" or "can you fix this" or maybe she would have just been pissed off and trashed my feedback. I don't know, but I do know the astrology and knowing the astrology, I was able to respond and not react. I didn't take it personally and I didn't start explaining "how this happened" because I knew what she really wanted was for me to apologize and do the thing I said I would do. So, that's what I did.)

 

Venus (at 11 degrees Sagittarius and answering to Jupiter) opposes a retrograde Ceres - in Gemini and answering to Mercury. Oppositions bring things to peak energy and often to an end. Ceres rules season of life situations (also situations where compromise is needed or where important things we care about/nurture are out of our control) and with all this GO energy now, there are also BIG ENDINGS. 


If something ends now KNOW we are meant to look in a new direction. The astrology is crystal clear here that the ending is fated/will move us toward something newer/BETTER (Mars/Jupiter). Keep your words/thinking/planning optimistic and focused on a wider horizon.

 

Now, something to keep in mind as this energy shifts is we have a BIG Full Moon in Aries opposing Mars in a couple days and then a couple days after that Mars is going to square Pluto (like the Sun did at the end of last week) - so we are going to pay attention to what is revealed and we are going to respond carefully NOT react impulsively - and then we are launched head-first into Scorpio season - co-ruled by Mars and Pluto, oh my!

 

This is INTENSE. 

 

This Full Moon energy can bring fast endings where we don't get any closure. If you are a certain kind of person that will sound just awful and it might be if we stay mired in what is over. Our ability to use the direct Mercury/Jupiter energy - looking toward a more optimistic future - is paramount now.

 

Anyway you cut it the retrograde/review period is over.

 

Fast endings and equally fast beginnings are possible now. Do your Libra (trying to control someone/some situation isn't going to work - think : cooperation). Keep your wits about you. With the Mars trine Jupiter activating 2020-2022's important 22 degree energies - the stuff we are taking action on this week, the stuff we are passionate about this week, the stuff that pisses us off this week has a WIDER CONSEQUENCE.

Today's Astrology Forecast | Sunday, October 17th, 2021- let go of the need to control, let go and let God, let go or be dragged


 

 

The Moon is in Pisces now - we are nourished/nurtured by spirituality, our imagination, art, sleep, time spent near or in water, relaxation, meditation, medication, what is done behind our back, our addictions, our past, Pisces people. She meets up with ruler Neptune (retrograde) at 12:59AM EDT and goes void at 7:23PM EDT off a sextile to Pluto. She is void for the rest of the night.


The Sun in Libra reaches his exact square to powerful Pluto. Pressure. Tension. Fear. Power struggles within relationships/with authority/over contracts. Passive-aggressive/indirect manipulation. Intimacy issues. Sometimes this brings hidden/ignored health situations into the light. The way through this one is the Moon's sextile to that same powerful Pluto. Pisces is the way through. Let go/let God. Releasing what needs to go/releasing what is dead. Going with the flow. Meditation. Sometimes medication. Prayer. Rest. Forgiveness. Sacrifice. Water. Hydration. Knowing we can't control anyone else or how anyone else experiences us.

 

Mars, following the Sun through Libra, will square Pluto next week when we might be taking action on what comes to light now. Or something might hit more acutely. Kapow! We'll talk about this in the weekly.

 

Also today is Mercury's final aspect retrograde - a smooth trine to Black Moon Lilith in Gemini. If we have some controversial conversation/information that needs to be revised/re-discussed/re-evaluated - maybe something from the beginning of September, well here's when we want to be re-negotiating this. When Mercury/BML reach their final trine at the Aries Full Moon on Wednesday this will be DONE.

 

Mercury and Jupiter are preparing to station direct TOMORROW. The conversation changes. Our fortune changes.

 

A BIG and intense week ahead. 

 

Buckle up.  

 

And get some extra sleep.  

 

On Monday, the Moon will be in Aries and we'll start building toward this week's Full Moon in Aries, it's a doozy!

Today's Astrology Forecast | Thursday, October 14th, 2021 - be yourself, lean on yourself, keep things light/intellectual, don't take it personally, expect the unexpected

 

The Moon is in individualistic Aquarius now - we are nourished/nurtured by our individuality/freak flags, our groups and causes, the goals that bring us into connection with other people, our genius, change, the future.

 

The Moon will meet co-ruler Saturn retrograde (limits, depression, isolation) at 4:54AM EDT,  sextile Venus at 6:03AM EDT, sextile Chiron at 10:42AM EDT, trine Mercury retrograde at 1:08PM EDT and square co-ruler Uranus retrograde at 4:51PM EDT. 


The bottom-line with all these aspects is probably something along the lines of  - staying a little detached, being smart and self-reliant. The Moon in Aqua does not function well with too much emotion/drama, so keep conversations/interactions light/intellectual. We can attract what we need, heal through group interactions, talk with partners, look over contracts (check the fine-print with that applying Moon/Uranus!), but there is a need to kind of stay on the surface of things now/detach a bit, not take things too personally.


The late afternoon square to Uranus - Moon in Aquarius co-ruler - might send something off in another direction. Again if we are relying on ourselves/standing on our own two feet, there is less chance we will be thrown over. Group dynamics might be tricky. Independent work is favored. The square could toss us a wild card - maybe involving our income, our resources, our products/purchases or self-esteem.


Tomorrow we have the buoyant/confident/optimistic Sun trine Jupiter and Saturday the healing Venus/Chiron - we talked about those aspects in the weekly HERE

 

The Moon will be void most of the day tomorrow BUT she will go void off a trine to the Sun (after she meets Jupiter, so pulls our emotions into the Jupiter/Sun flow), so continue to perform.


xo all

 

Keep in mind Mercury is still retrograde and Mars is still part of that same antsy pile-up in Libra. Both Mars and the Sun are headed toward challenges with Pluto. Keep a cool head. Take direct and well-thought through action, as opposed to passive-aggressive or impulsive/angry moves. Watch your triggers. Know some things are outside your control. This is all building to next week's Full Moon in Aries (our annual Mars ruled lunation) - endings, and the new starts they bring, can happen fast. Closure might be hard to come by. Hold on loosely. Defend what you value. Again keep in mind the Aqua Moon supports our genius - step back a bit, THINK, don't take things personally.
